All Kinds of News for April 07, 2021
Pure Life Adventure announced earlier this year their reopen date of March 1st. They quickly accepted five approved applications and have two more joining next week. “We are pleased to be able to help young adults again, Covid has taken its toll on the mental health of our young people”, said Mara Mueller, the Clinical Director and Owner.
Pure Life had to suspend operations in March of 2020 due to Covid restrictions placed on foreign travel into Costa Rica. Andrew Taylor, Founder & Executive Director said, “Having to suspend operations was hard for all of us but we have come out a better program as we’ve had a chance to further develop the program and make positive changes with a natural reset.”
Pure Life is happy to see so many staff with a desire to return to the program and they see this as a sign of program strength and health moving forward. They will be opening only one young adult group and will assess growth conservatively for now. Allan Capp, Program Director & Owner said, “It’s encouraging to see so many former staff reach out and show a desire to return to work for Pure Life. It’s nice to know we have talented people who enjoy working with us.”
